"Welcome to Spring!"
Guess who else?
Trying two new raised beds...the snap together kind, one for potatoes, one for more potatoes, probably. Heirloom starts from Seed Savers Exchange will be on their way beginning of April.
These recycled plastic beds are easy to assemble. There's a layer of newspaper under the flat-sided one and a layer of cardboard under the hole sided one. Newspaper and cardboard, hopefully, will keep the grass at bay. Hmmmm. They will be filled with topsoil mixed with compost, manure, and then planted. And, the purpose of the metal fence post? We live in the Madison Valley and that equals wind. Maybe the post will keep the bed from sailing off to the next county!
O, dear...this is a shot of the asparagus bed. Lots of work ahead!
